The club's official meeting night takes place on Tuesdays from about 6:30 to 9:00. Often members meet on Saturday between 9 AM and 12 Noon for additional work sessions, as well. Access may be avaialable at other times through prior arrangement with a club officer.
Our business meetings take place on the fourth Tuesday of the month. As the name suggests, these are the meetings where we discuss all of the business of the club.
Typically we hold an operating session once a month, usually on the first Tuesday of the month. These take two forms:
- Most months we have an official operating session, which run about 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hours and take one of two forms:
- Casual operations on our mainline, with modified switch lists and a dispatcher who runs the show. Our trains are a mixture of passenger trains, through freight, way freight and locals. These session typically.
- More formal operations on our branchline, using car cards and waybills. We still use a dispatcher to ensure that there are no cornfield meets, but the dispatcher is typically less involved. Branchline operations also include through trains and locals, as well as siumulated interchange with the main layout.
Mainline operations move frieght between our staging yard representing West Springfield, MA and Boston. Branchline operations run from Worcester, MA to New London, CT and a connectionwith the NECR Shore Line.
Our Model Railroad Show and Sale is held every February, usually on the last Sunday of the month. Since 2000, weve built a complete starter layout, and raffled it off immediately after the show. Tickets for this year's raffle layout can be purchased at the show or from any club member.
We also hold two open houses every year. One coincides with the annual Show and Sale, while the other is typically toward the end of the year. We always announce these events here on the site, so come back and check!
